Considering their biggest problems so far have been the two vague clues, imagine how they would have done had they have gotten on the 16th season.

They could have won! :groan: The teams on that season suck, period. With the exception of Steve and Allie who got robbed. :lol:

That 70's Show is American.
I've never watched the show but apparently a lot of people agree with you. Bill reminds me of someone but I can't think of who it is.

These two put everybody to shame (except the snowboarders) carrying the beds! :hearts: And Bill rocked the tobacco task. :yess: I hope they make it far; they have already made it farther then I previously thought. :)

Nearly every leg these two manage to make up a lot of time and get ahead of nearly all of the teams, but screw up and have to go back. Stop doing that!

I agree. They should have been 3rd last leg. They just didn't pay their truck driver.

Seriously, they need to be given credit for all the time they've managed to catch up every leg... they race decently, actually.

I just need to say I LOVE THIS TEAM.

I just need to say, how can they be 3rd in a really tough and physical leg?

Cathy just rocked the cycling and carrying Detour. They also left some teams in the dust while completing the rowing Detour. And, if you thought they were tired... HAHAHAHAHA... NO! They keep on racing and racing to the Pitstop, and we see them getting to the mat with strength enough to keep racing even though their 3rd place is safe.

HOTDOG <3!

BILL & CATHI GETTING U-TURNED AND STILL SECOND = :luvya:

O M G. I really hope that they make the FINAL 3. Jeremy and Sandy and Amani and Marcus look like they could not even make it till the end.

FINAL 5??? FROM A FIRST LEG NON-ELIMINATION?? They beat Maria and Tiffany as well as Jet and Cord's record of a first leg NEL/TBC and surviving till the FINAL 5.

BILLLLL AND CATHIIIIIIIIII <33333333333333333333

They might have even done better than the international teams that were saved on the first leg. Anyone want to check?
